Benefits of Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) is the most widely studied mindfulness intervention program in the world. Studies suggest that the practice of MBSR offers physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits:

Physical

MBSR can help manage chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and heart disease. It can also reduce high blood pressure, manage gastrointestinal (GI) and skin disorders and support immune system function.

Mental

MBSR is associated with improved brain function (learning, memory, focus and attention, and increasing cognitive flexibility), supporting neuroplasticity, and reducing amygdala reactivity to stress.

Emotional

Reducing anxiety, depression and rumination. MBSR can lead to greater empathy and compassion and improve ability to cope effectively with short- and long-term stress. It can also create a sense of calm and increase well-being.

Spiritual

Mindfulness practitioners have reported increased intuition, insight, wisdom and creativity as well as a clearer sense of purpose and meaning.
